PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND- A storm that blew through the East Coast this month may have produced a rare tsunami. NOAA says tsunami-like conditions were recored on June 13 at more than 30 tide gages from Puerto Rico to Bermuda to the East Coast of the U.S. Researchers are still trying to determine what caused it. NOAA says it could have been a rare meteotsunami, which is a tsunami caused by weather. Or it could have been caused by a landslide off the continental shelf, which is still uncommon.
